Honestly, its not that bad of an idea but some people might discourage because 19" is pretty damn big!

If you go through with it, tell us how it went! I aint mad!

Well, once prices drop for the season on tires, Im ordering NittoNT555 Tires 235/40ZR18 for the front and 265/30ZR19 for the rear. The wheels would be GGP/Polished Lip iFORGED Evolution 18x8/43offset & 19x9.5/52offset rear. Ill tell everyone how it works out, but dont count on pix for another good 6 months at least. (Personal policy w/ owner of car)DAMNIT!

18x8f and 20x9.5r would look nice. iFORGED evolutions or aeros. 20's would be a bitch to fit in the rear though.
that would look like crap. IF you're gonna put 20s in the back you'd need 19's up front. 2 inches difference would be hella noticable. Think of 19's in the back with stock 17's up front. oh hell no.

20's are too big anyway.

I did it with my racing hart m5's (3piece wheel) I had 18x7.5 (tire 225's) front and 19x8.5 rear (tire 265's)


Looked ok, but really didnt like it all that much so I sold them.


Decided on jus 18's all around

It was only a suggestion! Now that i image it in my head, youre right, that would look wrong. But see a couple posts up for my setup

It would def work. There's no reason it wouldn't.

It'd be better for potholy areas where you need a little bit more tire up front.
